Perusing the forums it seems that most, if not all, of the HTPC projects deal with boxes that live under or close to the telly. Apologies if this has already been asked (just point me to the thread) but let's suppose for some reason I want to put an HTPC, though I suspect more a PC based PVR, at Node 0 so I can share the recordings. Obviously this means that I'll have a media streamer at each location I want to access my recordings and possibly a NAS for storage. Be that as it may my question is this. Is it as simple as a PC with tuner cards and appropriate software? In other words, because I am streaming the files to media players, my Node 0 box doesn't need a fancy graphics card, nor does it need a sexy sound card, because these are both handled by the streamers? Or am I missing something? Thanks chaps.
